How to Make A Cookie Lollipop Cake

Updated on December 12, 2012

Be it for New Years Eve, July Fourth, or just a fun party dessert, a Star Lollipop cake is sure to please. Adding lollipops to your cake gives it added dimension, and gives party-goers the options of delicious sugar cookies or delectable cake.

You can adapt this cake for any theme (hearts for valentines day, numbers for a birthday cake, animals, flowers) and can use whatever flavor cookie or cake you'd like.

Basic things you'll need to make this cake:

  • Cake mix or recipe
  • Cookie mix or recipe
  • Frosting
  • Sprinkles or other decorations
  • Candy melts (you can purchase these at arts and crafts stores, like AC Moore or Michael's, or order them online from Amazon)
  • Lollipop sticks

STEP 1: Make the Cookies

Recipes for sugar cookies about, but I suggest the sugar cookie and frosting recipe from the Butterfly Garden Cake: Step-by-Step Directions hub (see Step 2 of that hub). Use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut the cookies into stars.


STEP 2: Use Candy Melts to "Glue" the Cookies to the Lollipop Sticks

Candy melts can be purchased at arts and crafts stores like Michaels or AC Moore or online. To melt the candy melts, I recommend using the double boiler technique (or as I know it, the metal bowl on top of a pan of simmering water). The instructions on the package say that you can use a microwave, but I have found this to produce inconsistent quality. One melted, spoon a spoonful onto the backside of the cookie and the attach the lollipop stick.


STEP 3: Frost and Decorate the Cookies

Once the candy melts have hardened (a few minutes), decorate the cookies!


STEP 4: Place the Cookies in the Cake

Place the cookies into your already made cake (any cake recipe will do - here's my favorite vanilla cake recipe and my favorite chocolate cake recipe). Push some lollipops in deeper than others to add some dimension to the look of the cake.

      Such a cute idea, very creative. I have two little ones and anything with the words, cake, lollipop or cookies gets them excited! Pinning! I'll have to make this for them, thanks for sharing. :)

      I love this idea. Reminds me of making CakePops (I wrote a Hub about that). I would not have thought of using cookies like this on a cake. Beautiful job. I voted this UP, and will share.

      Thanks Anamika! Just make sure you have enough lollipops for all the kids. I have made a second tray of cookies to serve with the cake.
